Watch faces made with Gear Watch Designer

Search This thread
I decided to give it a go and try the Gear Watch Designer to make some watch faces. I started with my sports teams and then tried a couple premium faces. I'll probably create some more with the faces from this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto-360/themes-apps/watchmaker-500-watchfaces-monster-pack-t3276583

Only annoying thing is that I can't delete the stock faces on the watch - several of which I'll never use, and there's a limit of 15 faces you can add. Since I've made 8 faces so far, and downloaded a bunch more, I'm out of space! Guess I like to fiddle too much...

Anyway, feel free to post faces you've made. I'd like to get some ideas of what other guys have come up with...

I've done a few from that thread - but only the non-chronograph versions (There is no Chrono function in Samsung Gear) - I find it easier to use the default AOD. If someone root's the Gear S3 then you'll be able to delete the stock dials

Gotcha. I've rooted lots of phones, but this is my first smartwatch, and my first adventure into Tizen. Would the non-carrier (WiFi) versions be easier/done first? (Seems like Verizon always makes it harder!)

I'm guessing we'll need to root to see the .gwd files on the stock faces too? I'm able to link to the Timer app or the stopwatch app for my chronograph faces, but I'd like to have it switch to something like the Chronograph+ stock face. I just like the look of the chronograph face watches better.

You need to get Gear Watch Designer on a PC.
http://developer.samsung.com/gear/design/watch-designer

There are tutorials on how to use it. The files in that zip are components that can be added to make a face. Then you need to install it to the watch from the PC, by disconnecting the Bluetooth connection to your phone, and connecting via WiFi to the same network as the PC with the face file.

I recommend downloading some faces (.gwd files) from the Watchland app on your phone. Send them to your PC, and open them in Gear Watch Designer. Use them as a template to see how to put faces together. (And/or swap in you own components).
 
Sry my english is not the best. See at picture

No worries, I'm thinking you meant needle, but it's the second hand.

Just start clicking through the components on the bottom left in Gear Watch Designer until you highlight the second hand. Delete it. Then click, "Watch Hand" on the left, and pick a new one, or import the image of a new one. Edit properties - size, placement, etc. on the right. Done...
